Does it fill with water?
Does it not do anything after it fills?
If this is the case than it is most definitely the lid switch.
I recently had the exact same problem. Easy fix if you are handy.
Remove back of control panel to access the mounting screws. this will give you hand access to the lid switch. Try manually activating it after letting it fill. Replace switch or repair if able.
Good luck

The cycle stops in the middle of the wash, rinse, etc. You have to push down on the lid to make it run again.....this is a pain resulting in the laundry taking hours to get done and close monitoring.


This is usually caused by a bad lid cam and plunger. The lid cam is located on the back of the lid which pushes the plunger into the lid switch. Replace these parts and your all set.

Maytag Atlantis 7700 - Noisy agitation/wash cycle from motor


Your drive motor may be fine. Check the water pump that is located in the back behind the small metal door on the left bottom corner and see if thats where your noise/water is coming from. These extraction pumps have bearings casing that gets mangled and locked up. Look right above the flywheel that the belt rides on in the W-pump.

Maytag Atlantis washer will not drain and spin unless you lift the lid


The cheaper thing to check first is is your lid bent? The lid switch is in the center of the lid. If it "droops" or has been bent, it shaft on the back of the lid cant hit the switch. Open the lid and apply pressure in the bottom, center of the lid. This usually corrects the problem without replacing the switch.

Defective lid switch I think


Sounds like your lid switch is ok .. u need to replace or adjust the plunger for the switch... below is a pic of the plunger.. sometimes u can get a little adjustment on the clip that pushs the plunger thats attached to the lid.. pic below

sounds like this is the part that has wore and shorten some...
